As a supplement to our courses and reference guides, we provide repetition auscultation training. Auscultatory repetition training has been used
in the CardioSource Heart Songs CDs and in several for-fee software products. The effectiveness of this type of training was
reported in CHEST in 2004: 'Mastering Cardiac Murmurs* : The Power of Repetition' by Michael J. Barrett, Carolyn S. Lacey, Amy E. Sekara, Erica A. Linden and Edward J. Gracely.
Using Repetition Training

For each sound, the audio recording will be repeated for two to three minutes. As the sound plays, a waveform with cursor is displayed for visual reinforcement. Textual listening tips are also provided. Most of the heart sounds repetition lessons include a choice or actual patient recordings and simulated heart sounds.
